Not All iPhone Parts Are Created Equal

iPhone Parts

iPhone Parts

We at DirectFix have been working with and selling parts for different PDAs for over 10+ years now. Since its arrival in 2007, we have been selling parts and accessories for the iPhone. One thing holds true from the past to present ‘Not all parts are created equal’. So what does that mean? Well, we get emails, messages, and posts on our Facebook wall or Youtube almost every day from individuals telling us how they found a part cheaper on Ebay, Amazon, Craigslist or some other website. It is plain and simple; you get what you pay for.

Sure, we receive daily emails from vendors that are willing to sell us cheap, junky parts at super low prices. We have been getting emails like this for years, even during the old days of PDAs. Could we buy these parts and sell them at super low prices so customers are happy about getting a repair part cheap? Certainly we could but when there is an issue, which will happen 99% of the time, with one of these cheap parts people will expect us to make good on it or they will go post negative comments about our company and the quality of our parts/service, and rightfully so; if we were to sell such parts. People that do sell these junky parts on random websites are college kids trying to make a buck on eBay do not have corporate backing, or reputation to uphold, or even care if you get a good product as long as they make money. We have even had cases in which individuals have contacted us saying they want a refund from the part they purchased from us on eBay only to discover -after some research- that they purchased the product from someone else but that seller sent them to our free videos on YouTube.

So what makes DirectFix different from the person selling the cheap parts on eBay? We know the vendors we buy from. The president of the company has flown oversea on numerous occasions and met with the vendors who provide our products. He has gone to the factories and has a long-standing, personal relationship with many of the vendors. We only buy original parts, every part is tested before it is shipped to us, and then when the part arrives at our facility, we test it again to make sure there are no issues. Does that stop every part we ship out from being bad? No. Damage can still happen from our location to our customer’s location but we take pride in making sure the customer gets a quality part that will last them the life of their device.

If you just want to save money and take a chance at buying a discounted part from eBay that might last you a day or maybe a few weeks, then go ahead and buy from eBay. However, if you want to make sure the part you receive is quality and will last the remaining days of the device, then buy from a reputable company like DirectFix.com. We stand behind what we sell and make videos available for FREE to help people repair their devices.

iPhone 4 Broken Screen Replacement Money Saving Tips

So we have been getting many emails regarding the screen replacement video we did for the iPhone 4 (See Video Below). We are also getting many people asking where are the replacement Touch Panels and LCD’s since the only part we list on our webpage DirectFix.com is the complete screen assembly for the iPhone 4 (IP-2411 Black).

Please read this information on some parts to avoid purchasing from sellers on Ebay. People that sell parts on ebay only want your money and rarely are they there to provide support or proper information regarding the part you purchase when it comes to the iPhone 4. We at DirectFix.com have spent many years and thousands of dollars providing quality videos and parts for the iPhone, Smartphone and PDA market.

As reported on many news sites and our site the iPhone 4 screen is nothing like the iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS. You are not able to separate the Touch Panel from the LCD and just replace the one broken part you need. The iPhone 4 Touch Panel and LCD are fused or adhered together just like the original iPhone 2G from 2007. At the factory Apple has taken the LCD and Touch Panel and adhered it together so it is one complete screen which also allowed them to make the iPhone 4 thinner. Just because a part is available on Ebay for sale does not mean it is the correct part to fix your problem. This is the case with the iPhone 4 and many people on ebay are selling the iPhone 4 LCD and iPhone 4 Touch Panel part by them selves. We have sacrificed many iPhone 4 screens trying to figure out a way to get the touch panel and lcd to separate from one another without any damage. Every time we attempted to take it apart a part would be damaged and or not work properly once put back together. We understand that it is very tempting to want to save some money by purchasing the cheap part from a vendor on Ebay but after the hours you will spend trying to fix your phone just to find out that the part is not correct is not worth it. I also doubt that any of those Ebay sellers selling the wrong part is going to take it back so you will be stuck with a part that does not fix your issue and you still need to get the correct part.

Our advise is to just follow the directions we have listed at DirectFix.com and read the information that we have provided so you get the correct part the first time. This will save you time, money and a big head ache dealing with some kid or person that is just out to make a quick buck selling parts out of their bedroom on Ebay.
